Inspired by life in the "land between the seas" (Schleswig-Holstein) and by his everyday life as a father and artist, the composer, guitarist and tin whistle player Olaf Sickmann has recorded timelessly beautiful guitar music on his new CD "Slow", whose magic it's hard to get away from. Wonderfully flowing melodies that radiate calm and serenity, over which a touch of Celtic, classical and soundtrack-like music hovers, give this album a meditative character. It becomes effective after just a few notes and immediately captivates the listener.
So it's no wonder that the music of this extremely independent artist is regularly played on radio and television and is described as "amazingly beautiful" by the largest German newspaper for folk and world music (Folker). The renowned guitar magazine "Akustik instrumente" says about his last guitar album: "As a result, the guitar poet presents three quarters of an hour of masterfully fluently played melodies." And the "Folkmagazin" is also enthusiastic about the "hypnotic flow of Sickmann's fantastic six-string odyssey".
In order to give the audience interested in guitars the opportunity to delve deeper into "Slow", Olaf Sickmann has included an e-book with all the compositions (sheet music/tablature) on the CD. Ultimately, "Slow" offers one thing above all: to find peace in everyday life!
English Version For his new CD “Slow“, composer, guitarist and tin whistle player Olaf Sickmann has recorded a fascinating selection of timelessly beautiful guitar music with an irresistable magic all of its own, inspired by his home in the north German state of Schleswig- Holstein and his day to day life as a father and artist. Wonderfully flowing melodies which exude tranquility and calmness, combining Celtic and classical elements with a soundtrack-like quality, give this album a meditative character which is immediately apparent and casts its spell upon the listener after only a few bars.
It's no wonder that the music of this remarkably independent artist is receiving regular airplay on radio and television and has been described by Germany's leading publication for folk and world music (Folker) as "absolutely beautiful". The highly regarded acoustic guitar magazine said of his last album, "Here the guitar poet has conjured three quarters of an hour of masterfully flowing melodies", while Folkmagazin enthusiastically praised the "hypnotic stream of Sickmann's fantastic six string odyssey".
In order to enable listeners with a serious interest in guitar to delve deeper into the music on "Slow", Olaf Sickmann has included an ebook on the CD, with transcriptions of all compositions in notation and tablature. But above all, "Slow" offers a wonderful opportunity to find peace and tranquility in the here and now!
